You may have seen it from an east bound train: an unexpected patch of greenery, graffiti and movement in the otherwise staid brick and steel that lines the East Perth railway tracks. A self-described ‘green oasis in a concrete jungle’, City Farm may not be a flashy oasis, but it is certainly deepening the shade of green Perth is wearing at present.
Farmer’s markets seem to be sprouting up thick and fast all over the city and surrounds, and City Farm’s Organic Grower’s Market is one of the few that is centrally located. Proudly offering certified organic stall holders, the market presents conscientious consumers with a one-stop organic shop of fresh fruit, veg, meat, dairy and groceries. Finally, a ‘green initiative’ that’s happening right now.
